Kim Kardashian West Was 'in Good Spirits' at Kendall Jenner's Big 2-1: 'Nothing Took Away from the Happy Vibe,' Says Source

Kim Kardashian West is still recovering from her traumatic Paris robbery at gunpoint, but things are starting to look up.

On Wednesday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star joined her family to celebrate sister Kendall Jenner‘s 21st birthday in Los Angeles, marking a rare outing for the mother of two since she had millions of dollars worth of jewelry stolen from her by masked men at the No Address Hotel during Paris Fashion Week last month.

The evening kicked off with an intimate dinner at hot spot CATCH LA restaurant, and the party continued with a star-studded late night bash at hot spot Delilah. Kardashian West, 36, attended both events, though she kept an extremely low profile and wasn’t photographed at either.

According to a source, the dinner consisted of around 20 people, including Kendall’s close pal Hailey Baldwin, plus Kendall’s sisters and parents Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, as well as Scott Disick.

The source says Kardashian West arrived slightly late, looking casual in a nude outfit, but nonetheless was “very excited to celebrate Kendall.”

“Nothing took away from the happy vibe despite Kim’s recent trauma,” says the insider. “She gave Kendall a sweet card and some jewelry. Kendall was visibly touched by the card.”

The dinner, which was filmed for KUWTK, had a “really fun party atmosphere,” says the source. Caitlyn, 66, sat with Kris’ mother Mary Jo Shannon and “seemed to have a great time,” says the source.

And while Kardashian West has remained strictly off social media since the robbery, she found her own way to celebrate Kendall’s big day: by surprising her with her very own Kimoji, a recreation of the star’s 2014 teleprompter flub when she accidentally referred to the band 5 Seconds of Summer as One Direction while announcing them at the Billboard Music Awards that year.

“To celebrate her 21st birthday, the KIMOJI team made Kendall her very own KIMOGIF!” reads a post on Kardashian West’s website via her Kimoji team. “Happy Birthday Kendall!”
